Set along the Mekong River, the southern town of Pakse features lovely French colonial architecture and a colorful market stocked with fresh produce grown from the nearby Bolaven Plateau, a highland region that is inhabited by a number of ethnic minority groups. Pakse is also a great jumping off point for a visit to Wat Phu, which is an exquisite, Angkor-era temple complex built between the 6th and 13th centuries. Even the most temple-weary visitors can’t help but be captivated by the mesmerizing beauty of the lonely ruins.
